If your friend is found not guilty you might have a claim for malicious prosecution and / or perjury against the girl. It is quite unlikely that any prosecutor is going to charge their victim with lying. If any action is taken, your friend will likely have to consider a civil lawsuit against her, but that only makes sense if she has money to pay any judgment he might get.
